Aditi Gupta has been a menstrual educator for the past 8 years now. Having been at the receiving end of period-related stigmas while growing up, she has a deep understanding of the discomfort people face when conversing about the topic. As a result, she has been committed to addressing menstrual myths and taboos through Menstrupedia, an initiative that she is a co-founder of, and that uses comic-books and relatable media to de-stigmatise menstruation.
Over the years Aditi's work at Menstrupedia has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, CNBC and BBC. She is a TED Speaker, and a Forbes India 30 Under 30 achiever. She was also named as one of BBC’s 100 influential women of 2015 and has been a World Economic Forum Global Shaper. Aditi has been invited in seven countries to share the model of her work in the field of menstrual health and awareness.
So far, Aditi has educated over 50,000 girls and women about periods, body positivity, and menstrual health. She has trained and coached over 10,000 educators in the movement towards Period Positivity.
Educational tools designed by her and her team are currently employed by over 11,000 schools in India. Menstrupedia’s resources are widely used in over 25 different countries. Aditi’s work in the field of menstruation has impacted the lives of over 13 millions girls and women across India and the world.
Aditi dreams of a future where menstruation is not considered to be a taboo but a welcome change in young girls’ lives. Until then, she continues to contribute and innovate in the high-need areas of reproductive health education, adolescent lessons, relevant life lessons, and more.
